Love Stories

50’s Diner

Angelo Kangleon Photography

Don’t you just love those diners from the 50’s? Since both Rhia and Paul love the 50’s, this was the ideal venue for their photoshoot. Rhia’s red polka dot dress and hair were perfect. As she’s a baker, they also did another set of photos with a Hansel and Gretel theme. Angelo Kangleon Photography captured the best of both of them.

The Vibrant Streets of Manila

Mary and Lau flew over to Manila from Kota Kinabalu for a portrait session. There, they went to Intramuros for a casual shoot, with its colonial buildings, cobblestone streets and great colours. Instead of letting the busy and crowded street become an obstacle to the photoshoot, Julian of Wainwright Weddings used it to deliver some very outstanding and interesting shots.

Cast Away

This is an instance where you have to watch the video to really enjoy the set of photos. Something out of the ordinary, it’s inspired by the movie ‘Cast Away’, and we love the plot and how carefully they planned the camera angles and music. We’re especially impressed by how they captured their aerial shots too. Considering this couple aren’t actors, we’re in awe of the outcome. In fact, we’re tempted to ask about a sequel. The team should really explore making short films.

Nikko of Pixelfish Concept: “The concept was that the both of them had been stranded on the island. They built a shack and helped each other get through the days with the little they had left. One day, out of nowhere, a wave brought in a suitcase of nice, new clothing. So they decided to put aside all their worries about surviving and have a good night together.”

All Eyes On Them

MunKeat of Frame[S]tudio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This is the first set of bridal portraits and wedding we’ve received that were taken in Switzerland, and we are in love with the place and the photos taken by MunKeat. There’s a good reason why this couple flew the team halfway across the globe to Switzerland, but we’ll let the photos do the explaining.

Wild At Heart

Chris Ling International Photographers. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Catwoman might never meet Iron Man in the comic books but we can do anything we want in bridal portraits. Angela looks kind of wild (and hot!) in this set of photos. It is nice when couples choose to be themselves as it makes the photos a lot livelier. On another note, we would seriously like to visit Chris Ling’s studio one day. It looks amazing.

A Blissful Wedding At Paresa Resort, Phuket

Wedding at Paresa Resort, Phuket. Aidan Dockery Wedding Photography

Getting married at Paresa Phuket makes you feel like you are on top of the world, as it is perched high on the cliff side with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Andaman Sea. This is the perfect number of guests for a destination wedding. We like their reception on the platform next to the pool, under the open sky. It must have been quite an experience dining there during sunset, and with an unobstructed view of the fireworks at night.

Roaming Around Japan

Wedding photos in Shibuya, Tokyo. Photography by Studio Numb9r. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is hard to not love Japan, so we can imagine why many dream to have their bridal portraits done there. Though it is a very busy city, the people and culture more than make up for it. Not everyone can afford a destination bridal portrait session, but photographers in recent years are starting to make it a little bit easier.

Marissa and Jay: “It was like a dream come true to have our bridal portraits taken in Tokyo. We never thought it would be possible until we found Jimmy of Studio Numb9r, who was planning a photography trip to Tokyo. We liked his photography style, so we decided in a very short time to join him.

“The most unforgettable shot was the one taken in Shibuya, at the world’s busiest junction. It was raining and the weather was cold, and we were standing right in the middle when the pedestrian lights turned green. Everyone was staring at us, and some even stopped to congratulate us. It was a bit embarrassing, but overall it was fun.

“Every part of Tokyo is unique, and even though it was very cold when we were there, we enjoyed ourselves very much. The most important thing was we had a very fun time.”

Urban Chic Wedding

Toto Villaruel Fine Art Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We’re impressed by how elegant the gate of Enderun looks, standing tall with the big courtyard and palm trees. It does look like one of those celebrity mansions in LA. Toto Villaruel sent us this beautiful set of wedding photos. The dusty pink flowers and gown are a perfect choice for an urban chic wedding, while the hand painted floral wedding cake looks really gorgeous.

We also like the fact that Starbucks and Krispy Kreme put in a special appearance. Sometimes, it is just nice to include something “common” in your wedding. It adds some sort of identity to your wedding day. It should be all about you anyway.

The Hamptons-Themed Akad Nikah

Photography by Anna-Rina. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The Malay solemnisation ceremony, Akad Nikah, never ceases to impress us with how beautifully they are set up, especially those that are held at home. This ceremony was held at Dina’s parents’ house. As always, Anna-Rina was more than happy to take photos of this fun bunch. We’re just amazed at what Reka Teemor did with the seashells, which looked perfect with the combination of flowers.

Dina: “We both felt relieved and overjoyed when we were officially pronounced husband and wife; that moment when the entire crowd started clapping and cheering for us. We both love the beach and wanted a theme that was relaxed but elegant, and ‘the Hamptons’ best reflected our personalities.”

High Society Of The 70s

thePhotograph. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We can’t tell you how much we love “era” photoshoots. Extra effort has to be taken to ensure that the lighting, props and attire are right. We know thePhotograph is a very talented team of photographers but this is really like one of our all-time favourite photoshoots, and we just couldn’t wait to share it with you.

thePhotograph: “Sandra and Anto are from Jogjakarta. Their common interest in cats brought them together. Everyone who has been to Jogja knows that they are known for their vintage cars, so we adopted a ‘High 70s’ style for this photo session.

“There’s something romantic about driving around Jogjakarta, with music playing in the background and just having a good chat and lots of laughs. With Sandra’s fine gowns and Anto’s smart suits, they looked perfect for the shoot.”

Red MINI

Iyao of Frame[S]tudio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Here are two of our favourite things put together, Coke and a MINI. Road trips are nice because they always remind us that we are on a journey. Like every bridal portrait or wedding, they are not the destination, merely part of a journey where two individuals celebrate their love for each other and pledge to finish the journey together. The photographer, Iyao, set the right mood for the shoot, and the floating alphabets are just adorable.
